Announcement – Balticon 43 Special Coming Soon

by Erk

Erk Pod June 2009

Folks, I have just finished a massive week in the Baltimore & DC areas. I recorded two episodes of Erk Pod with Jamie the Podmedic (half of 196 & 199). I also had a Police ride along and two episodes of Erk Pod (201 & 202) with Some Guys in a Car. I also did some touristy things in Washington DC.

Then I spent the next 3 and a half days at Balticon. During this time, I was going to various podcasting and new media sessions to meet people, learn more as well as offer some of my experiences. I did learn a lot, I didn’t sleep a lot and I was inspired even more than usual and am uber excited about podcasting (again, more than usual).

Needless to say, this has meant that meant that over the past week, there have been no travel entries and (until tonight) no new Flickr photos. But when you hear the line up of people I interviewed to appear on Erk Pod during “The Balticon Special That Never Ends”, you’ll know why I am excited.

Even though the aim was for short interviews, there are many of them. Regular Erk Pod/Channel Erk listeners will know that my interviews are usually longer and fun to do but Balticon wasn’t the place for long, fun interviews. So instead, Balticon was a juggling act. It was fun to try to be in the same spot as another person in a suitable location. It was fun having people refer other people to me who I didn’t know of before hand.

So here’s the plan……

Most likely, there will be 2 episodes of Balticon related content. They will be played in the order they were recorded. They will appear on the Erk Pod and the Channel Erk feeds. There will be some related music, too. Most likely, these will be episodes 203 & 204 to be released later this week.

For the people who were interviewed or are fans of a particular person, the interviews will also be available separately but ONLY from the Erk Pod website (www.erkpod.com.au) where they can be downloaded or played directly. The separated files WILL NOT be in the Channel Erk or Erk Pod feeds. After all, you’ll be listening to the full episodes, right? Any of the people who appear are more than welcome to place their interview or the entire episode onto their website and into their feeds.

So who is on the list? Man, what a list! It includes but is not limited to:

And better still, once I return home to Australia and everyone who went to Balticon gets some sleep, I plan to have extended interviews with people from “The Balticon Special That Never Ends”
